Where Can They Hide?

You may have imagined that surely some of the fish could swim away from fishers and live to make the next generation of little fishes. Sadly, that’s no longer so easy. A new United Nations report predicts that modern fishing methods could literally kill ALL the fish in the sea over the next 40 years. For younger readers, that means YOUR LIFETIME! This is possible because of refrigerated trawler fleets that go out with sonar to spot the fleeing fish, nets that are miles long, and butchering shops right on board. The mud trails kicked up by trawlers’ bottom-reaching nets can be seen from satellites in space. What can you do? Eat less fish, or better yet, no fish. There are many other sources of the nutrients you need to be healthy.
